This is too funny. Kinda like a car crash you don't want to watch but you have to... I think anything bigger than a earthworm (the Normal small fishing size) is a big snake!!! I think I will request a 2nd or 3rd floor room when we go in Sept. We stayed at POR and thank gosh never saw one. Here to hoping my luck never changes.

I am so

Guys... snakes are nothing more than lizards without legs. If you can find them in trees, of course you can get them in your room... just like a mosquito, toad, or even a little gator (not that that's likely) .. perhaps all 3 hunting each other?

OP... I doubt very much if you'll get anyone with a pic of a snake in their Disney room unless it's Kaa or Sir Hiss... or unless their the type who'd be looking to Disney for full reimbursement of their vacation. I'd be out of there chasing down housekeeping to help me shoo the critter out the door.

Snakes I can handle. SPIDERS I can't!

I saw plenty of snakes growing up in Michigan. The highlight of one summer was seeing a real live Mississauga rattler on our front lawn. I've always liked snakes.

As I've said, spiders are my thing. I once opened up a bag of grapes and a large spider crawled out - after I finally killed the thing I noticed an hourglass on its belly. I now soak all of our grapes in a large bowl of water for a half hour before I open the package!

I've been to Disney about 15 times, and I've never seen a snake there. I live on a lake bordering the Everglades and I've never seen an alligator or a snake around here. I wouldn't be too worried... really. Just use common sense: keep your door closed and avoid the bushes, yadda yadda.

Of course, there are the alligator eating pythons that live down here in South Florida... seriously. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9600151/

Maybe it's that black snake you had in your kids' playset in NY about 6 yrs ago and it crawled down to FLA and multiplied! You know, now that you said all this, you will see one when you go in June.

Love ya!

We were staying at SSR last month and I went out on to our balcony (ground floor) to sit in the sun when all of a sudden this quite large black snake slithered past my foot. I nearly pooped myself....... and then when I calmed down I was amazed how beautiful it acually was.

A couple of days later we saw another one close by just making its way accross the 18th fairway of the golf course.

gosh! I get chills up my spine over this. I dont know what it is about snakes!!! I grew up in the fields of North Carolina and saw more snakes and snake bites then I'd ever care to for the rest of my life I know they are SUPPOSE to be more scared of you then you are of them, but #1 - I doubt it and #2 with MY luck, I'd get the renagade snake trying to impress some girl snake who would get the thrill out of showing me who's the bigger scairdy cat.. me thats who. BTW, I called POP and told them I don't care what room or what view, I want on the highest floor (I didn't tell them about the snake thoughts though, I do have some dignty to try & retain.)

I don't want to eridicate the earth of snakes or anything like that, I just don't want to worry about them in my ROOM. I'll stay out of thier nest/den whatever thier house is called, and they stay out of my room and we can all co-exist just fine. I really do think I'd faint if I pulled back the covers to see a snake in my bed though.
